Along with selections on the KAP curriculum, right now I'm in various stages of reading How to Measure Anything by Doulas Hubbard, Tacit Knowing by Michael Polanyi, A Whole New Mind by Daniel Pink, and Consulting on the Inside by Beverly Scott.

Since you are both more advanced in the understanding of everything MBM, I am seeking your knowlege. I want to learn more about free markets/economics and how it can relate to me, as a manager, within a Koch company. What would you recommend to someone for their first book on how the idea of prospering societies was used to create the MBM philosophy. What do I need as a fundamental starting point? Thanks for your advice.


If you haven't read The Science of Success yet, that is the best place to start. If you are looking to go a little deeper, you might try Thomas Sowell's A Conflict of Visions and Basic Economics.

A Conflict of Visions is great! Also try "I, Pencil" for a quicker read:

Thanks! I've read The Science of Success twice and utilize parts of it in team meetings regularly. So, I think I'll take your suggestion by Thomas Sowell. (By the way, I read "I, Pencil" when I first found this site - so , thanks for linking to that here!)

If you like "A Conflict of Visions" you should definitely check out Bennet's article called "Constrained Change - Unconstrained Results" which ties Sowell's heady ideas into day-to-day management:
